Hi, I am running VA5000 on Window98SE

Having run VA5000 in full-screen mode- I did an Alt-Tab by mistake,

This caused a blank screen.
Alt-Tab moved back to VA5000
Alt-Tab again caused the Host system and VA5000 to lock up.

(I've ocassionlay had the same problem when doing Alt-Enter
so that I can change disc images(as there isn't a way of doing
this in full-screen mode, (But I will read the manual again).

I'm suspecting that it has something to do with the drivers for my
onboard video card (S3 Pro Savge DDR) and thier interaction with
DX9 rather than with VA5000.

However, I was mentioning this in case other users had experienced simmilar problems or had suggestions on how to localise the fault.

I've seen a number of full screen Windows/apps that can get confused by ALT TAB. When running VA pressing it once shouldn't matter and a few ALT ENTER presses should sort it out.

ALT TAB switches between active tasks and should only be used when you are running Windows apps in a window.
